So just a couple of changes, I think I will leave it this way.



If I experiance any problems with the plants I will change things then.

We were looking at some Blue's and greens. Now the guy we were talking to said we could get away with about 5 of each in the 90g.

He also said we could mix them. Which is fine with me as long as they dont eat each other. So would this be ok?

The other thing I need to know is how many could we put in? I was hoping for at least 5 of each, but at nearly 150$ each I sort of think we will have to stock slowly. Now there is a reptile show in Red Deer, Albert, next weekend so we will have to scope out what they have at the show.

But does any one know of any other dealers that have dart frogs in Calgary?

Nice tank looks real good, but i would not mix the blues and greens in there its not a good idea i would just get either the greens or the blues whatever u prefer. Not a good idea to mix them.

That is what I thought, becasue they are diferant right. I mean that they are the same species just a diferant veriation, its not just the color.

Has any one had any experiance with this.

I think the tank looks a little plain. More plants and or moss could fix that. It is a good layout though.

I don't know if you mentioned it but if you're talking about arautus then 10 frogs might be a few too many. I would feel more comfortable with about 6.

I don't see anything wrong with mixing the colors just watch the individuals themselves. stressed frogs due to the other frogs would be a more concerning issure.

Have fun

And if you are talking about Arautus, then $150 is way too much, they should be about $30-40 ea. Some will say not to mix blues with greens, they are not the same frog. But, there are some diversity with the Auautus. A pair can in some cases produce offspring from greensih to blueish, so you might beable to find that. The other things is that ten frogs will eat a lot, so be prepared to handle the food load. But I agree that ten is probably a few too many considering how much of the land is lost to water.

I thought that they were asking a bit much. I have discovered a new canadian site, thanks to a member here that pointed it out. Thank you.

I was just thinking that 10 is a bit much. So I think we will get 5 at most.

I am leaning towards the blues, so I will be on the hunt for thoese this coming weekend.

Iam hoping to get some more greeen ground covearge once the moss on the left takes off.

Thanks to all for the input.

It really is a beautiful tank. Just a word on the blues, they tend to be more on the shy side, more so thjan black and green. But, their beautiful color makes up for that.

Great looking tank!

The addition of some leaf litter would really be appreciated by your future frogs. Also, adding some pothos, or another large leaf climbing plant, to the base of the background, would increase the usable area in the tank, and look pretty darn cool.

Good job!

Leaf litter is mainly leaves that are picked from trees and washed down right.

Is there a certin leaf that is perfered over another.

I was going to add some leaves jsut before we get the frogs so it is fresh.

So do you guys bake it or cleanse it some how, to keep perasites out.

As long as Im the one collecting the leaf litter (yes, dead leaves off trees, oak and magnolia last longer in vivs), I put it directly into the viv. This was when i was collecting from the middle of the woods, where pesticides and fertilizers were not a threat. Id get all kinds of goodies in the way of microfauna in the viv. If I was ever unsure as to where the leaf litter came from, it got boiled. Some of the sponsers here sell magnolia leaves, but depending where you are, you may just be able to go out and collect some yourself. In Texas, I had access to a mix of oaks, which looked great in tanks.

I see some people said you need MORE plants, I would say maybe try to let them grow out and fill in, that would be different letting only a small number of plants pretty much dominate an entire 90Gallon tank!

I would say the only plants you need to add would be aquatic plants, as Monopolybag said let your plants grow out and fill in before you think of adding more above ground..... Other than that i really like the design and it turned out great.
